NFL.com has released their 2016 NFL Draft class power rankings and the Titans are #1. Can you remember the last time the Titans were #1 in any kind of power rankings? I can't. Jon Robinson is the man!

Here is what Lance Zierlein had to say about the Titans 4 picks in the Titans class:

Through trades -- most notably that big one with the Los Angeles Rams for the No. 1 overall pick -- the Titans were able to secure four of the first 45 picks in the draft. Each of the players selected with those picks rated in the top 50 of Brandt's Hot 100. Just look at those four selections, too, and you'll see the makings of "exotic smashmouth." Three of those picks will help bolster the Titans' presence at the line of scrimmage, while 6-foot-3, 247-pound bruiser back Derrick Henry aims to fortify the Titans' ground game behind Marcus Mariota.

Robinson had a plan and he executed it in this draft. There is something to be said for that. Now we just have to see how it plays out on the field.
